    After all the problems I had with my '15 Suburban, I decided to give things another shot and went and got a new '18 Denali, 6.2L, 10-Speed. Seems like from '17+ they have all the issues taken care of and these trucks are pretty much problem free now.

    So, with that being said, I'm looking at Intakes. I've read the info on Black Bears Site, and also some things people said on here about drivability / transmission issues caused by Intakes.

    I'll put up a Poll for you all to choose from. If you want to, comment the good / bad / ugly and all that stuff.

    I went Volant. Sounds good, looks good and just a tad bit of HP and mileage increase. I suspect the BB tune will wake it up even more. The wife likes the sound as well.

    I went with the GM cold air intake first. It was better than stock. Gave more audible feedback but no real change in feeling.

    I sold the GM and went to the afe Power Momentum GT (51-74104) with dry filter. It gave MUCH more audible feedback for a much throatier sound across the throttle range. It does have a plug to make it somewhat quieter but not a ton. It def gave a peppier feel for the throttle. Blackbear did an intake dyno test and this intake seemed to be the best. I love it but its loud.

    Not bad, driving normal you barely hear anything during normal acceleration fir a few seconds. If you press the go fast pedal more, then you will hear it briefly until velocity is increased. With cruise control engaged, you will hear a few seconds when approaching a change in grade sometimes.
    I can stealth drive and you wouldn’t be able to tell I had one, at least until I pull up beside a ford.

    Volant. Along with exhaust, Magnaflow. Not real happy with the drone I get from it though. Didn't have any drone with a Flowmaster on my Silverado but as everyone should now, "Flow" is not really good on a Flowmaster.... EngCompartmentwide.jpg

    Went with the Airaid Tube and AEM Dryflow.

    Airaid redesigned the Tube for the '18 6.2L Motor, which I like. It's not a one size fits all for the 5.3 / 6.2 anymore.

    What it used to look like VS what it looks like now. The one size fits all is the pic without the filter in it. The new redesign for the 6.2L is the pic with the filter in it.
